Dear family, I am so sad to hear of Dale’s death. We were good friends who worked together and played a lot of cards and other things with her and Pat whey they were married. His death was certainly a tragedy and somehow we lost touch. I tried to find her but had no luck but am glad to hear she remarried and had a great life. I knew her three children and played nurse with Erin whenever we were over. I am glad everyone recovered from that tragic vacation. It sounds as if the Bieschke family embraced her and a nice blended family was born. Please accept my condolences and know that I feel a deep sadness at her loss from this earth.

Enda Junkins Enda Junkins, March 11, 2007 Dale always made her house a "home away from home" for Lacey's school friends. We had countless slumber parties, kept her up all night, raided her kitchen, and occasionally got into trouble, but she always welcomed us back. You know your friends' parents alot better when you're 12 than when you're 27, and I'll always fondly remember Dale as part of my growing up with Lacey. She was a very sweet lady, and I extend my condolences to Erin, Lacey, and John for the loss of their mom. -Lisa Peck, Austin TX Lisa Peck, March 6, 2007 Dale always made her house a "home away from home" for Lacey's school friends.

You and the family are in our thoughts and prayers. Love and prayers, Dave and Ginny Dave and Ginny Sturm, February 27, 2007 I was shocked to recognize Dale's photo in the paper. We used to work together at Hope Cottage. I went to Dale and Pat's wedding which was held in some relative's large apartment and the priest misjudged how many people would take communion (most of us were not Catholic), so he had to drink and drink and drink the unused wine and was half looped before the reception ever started! (Information you never knew?) I kept up with Dale at periodic dinners out at restaurants with fellow social workers, her supervisor Norma Miller, and coworker, Enda Junkins. My address is 416 Winding Brook Lane, Richardson, TX 75081, as I don't know how to contact y'all. My deepest sympathy to y'all. I'm a cancer survivor and sounds like that's what got Dale--so very sorry. Remember a "musical play" that we did one summer in Betty Rushing's back yard (she was the CEO)--Dale was pregnant with me (in white sheet with aqua pillowslip arranged around her head like Mother Mary)and managed to walk into the yard with me hidden beneath her sheet, then she begins to sing "Que Sera, What Will Be, Will be" as I am "born" beneath her sheet. I, of course, am in a "diaper shirt" (top half of a pair of shortie pj's) and a cloth diaper out of I don't remember what and some white socks and yellow patent "Mary Jane" heels (with a strap across them in case that's so ancient the girls don't know what I'm talking about!). Enda was the "evil, tempting" side and Miranda Roberts (if memory serves me correctly) was the "good" fairy godmother side of my forming personality with a starry sceptre, and Patrick Tiner was some sort of Roman toga-robed scribe, telling the audience what was transpiring. Wonderful musical and very cathartic for us all--if Dale never told you, we did plays and musicals for every person leaving the agency and for Christmas and other special events! We also used to go to lunch together--about 5-6 of us on an almost daily basis and, if memory serves me correctly, we were all trying to get the "left hand" corner of the table when we discovered that we were all left handed and there was no need to scope out and grab our seats as we weren't going to be bumping into anyone's elbow. Remember the tragedy of Pat's death when y'all were on vacation in the mountains after he had done some sort of filming shoot in the West, I think it was, and how shocked and saddened we all were. Lost contact with Dale sometime in the 90's, Christmas card came back, and I tried again to get in touch with her when I was given Lifetime Achievement Award by NASW in 1999 and was inviting all of the old group to come and laugh and talk and hug and couldn't find her, obviously because she'd married Bob and I didn't know how to find her. So glad she had that 10 years with Bob and hope that her struggle with cancer wasn't too painful or debilitating so that she could enjoy being with all of y'all--kids now grown and with grandchildren, too. How wonderful. My sympathies to you all and my love to the kids who I haven't seen since they were preschoolers! I will tell Enda (who now lives in Ouray, Colorado!) and Dale's supervisor, Norma, died a few years ago. Sonja Sonja Bilger Romanowski, February 27, 2007 My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. May God give you and your family all the courage and strength to tide over this extreme loss and grief. Brenda Young, Texarkana, Tx Brenda Renee Young, February 27, 2007 I worked with Dale for a short time around 2000-2001. What a beautiful lady inside and out. I was so sorry to hear about her passing. I send my sincere sympathy to her entire family. Trish Mercer, February 26, 2007 Our memories of Dale will always be of her friendly smile. She was always such an inspiration in the Variety Shows here at Heritage Ranch. She's the one that looked liked a teenager and seemed to love being a part of the show. She will be missed by so many people. Our condolences to her family and to Bob. Frank & Sandra Teagarden, February 26, 2007 Dale was a sweeet friend and has helped many people at Heritage Ranch in many ways. She will be deeply missed. Carol Boone, February 26, 2007
